    The Glock 17 project is complete. The grip was just received back from StippGrips for stippling and frame modifications. The finger groves were removed, velvet stipple pattern, trigger guard rounded and undercut along with index points.

    The Slide assembly is from Voodoo Innovations featuring match grade threaded barrel, recoil spring selection, steel guide rod, profiled/lightened slide, red dot relief cut and cover plate. All stock parts were replaced with: Zev trigger kit/mag release, Vickers slide release, lone wolf slide stop and Deus Ex Machina magwell.

    It's amazing that a few frame modification make the gun feel entirely different and better. The trigger undercut alone is a wonderful thing.

    Thanks. It's a radical departure from a basic Glock that some don't find appealing and a few find revolting.

    Wow, that's a pretty extensive overhaul! Looks neat, though I admit I'm more practical and limited in what I do to my Glocks. Night Sights and a Lone Wolf 3.5 connector are all the mods I require, but mine are mainly defensive guns that are also shot at the range. But for purely a fun gun or competition piece, this could fit the bill nicely!

    How does it shoot with all those mods?

    About an 1100 dollar Glock now?

    Waiting for a range report.

    How do you like those suppressor sites with the RMR? Trying to decide between those, triji's, or some cheap all black metro's. Been leading towards the XS sites, but havn't pulled the trigger yet. Nice gun!!!

    That's a cool gun Willie, and I'm not a Glock fan as you know.
